(CNN) - Sen. Marco Rubio isn't saying whether he ever smoked marijuana.
Asked at an education forum at Miami-Dade College on Monday whether he ever smoked marijuana, Rubio answered: "If I tell you that I haven't, you won't believe me. And if I tell you that I did, then kids will look up to me and say, 'Well, I can smoke marijuana because look how he made it. He did alright so I guess I can do it too.'"
The Florida Republican and possible 2016 GOP presidential contender opposes making the recreational use of marijuana legal. Legalizing medical marijuana is on the ballot this November in Florida.
